Former Dynamos coach, Elvis “Chuchu” Chiweshe, has found a new home in Swaziland after landing a contract with one of that country’s top teams — Manzini Wanderers — at the weekend. Chiweshe was invited for interviews by the club last week and will take over the reins from Mlamuli Zwane who resigned just before the start of pre-season training.
According to Times of Swaziland newspaper, Chiweshe was expected to sign on the dotted line and be introduced to the club’s management committee on Monday, although terms of the agreement have been kept under wraps.
Chiweshe had been keeping a low profile since he returned home in March after quitting his post at Gaborone United in Botswana in a huff.
“Chiweshe was expected to start training with the team yesterday afternoon at their Trade Fair Ground,” wrote the Times of Swaziland.
Manzini Wanderers will become the second team to be coached by Chiweshe outside Zimbabwe after the former free-kick specialist had a stint with Gaborone United in Botswana.
He left the club in March this year following a clash with some board members.
Manzini Wanderers are one of the oldest football clubs in the mountain kingdom after being founded in 1957 and have won their domestic championship six times.
In Swaziland, Chiweshe will join his compatriot Lloyd Mutasa who is coaching another top Swazi side Green Mamba.
Chiweshe led Dynamos into the mini-league phase of the Caf Champions League in 2009 and also guided the Harare giants to successive runners-up spots in the Premiership with Motor Action just edging his side for the championship on goal difference in 2010.
Chiweshe left DeMbare in December 2010 after falling out with the fans.
